Surveys for the first day:
What problem am I trying to solve? Why is this problem important? Why is solving it difficult?
What has been done before (to solve that same problem, to solve related problems that I can leverage)? How do I compare to other efforts to solve that same problem - is my solution better and how?
What is my solution (high level intuition)? What are the details that I have to decide (thresholds, design flow, etc)? How can I reason about these decisions?
What data can I use to test my solution? Do I have enough data? Is there noise? Do I understand ground truth? Can I generate synthetic data?
What is my desired outcome at the end of the program? What is the smallest unit of work that I can complete to feel I've made progress on solving this problem?
